Special Enquiry Detail Goes Free on Google Play and Amazon Appstore

May 20, 2015

G5 Entetainment is giving away its popular hidden mystery thriller Special Enquiry Detail: The Hand that Feeds for free for limited time on Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.

Special Enquiry Detail: The Hand that Feeds is an intriguing tale of murder and corruption. In the game you follow two detectives, newly assigned to the SED, as they investigate the death of young Carmody Phelps. Nobody in her life, it seems, is above suspicion; her parents, her ex-boyfriend, even her best friend from school, all seem to be hiding something. You’ll follow detectives as they track down leads and process evidence. In addition to finding clues like Carmody’s diary and stray bullets, you’ll have to interview witnesses and suspects; make sure you pay attention to what they say, because you’ll need that information to solve puzzles later in the game.

The scenery in each of 30 locations is so realistic that even the most subtle nuances come to life: specks of dust, flies in the room and even coffee fuming in the Big Boss’ cup. Use items in your inventory in order to solve each of 25 puzzle mini games. Pay attention to what you are told – even the smallest detail could solve this murder!

This game can be played over and over: hidden evidence appears in alternate locations on consecutive play sessions. Completing all the 12 chapters unlocks the “Find All” mode, allowing you to return to all locations and explore them once again.

The promotion goes on until May 24, 2015.

The only condition for this inheritance is to enter into the hotel business. Claire accepts the challenge, thus launching a campaign of 60 levels, each level signifying one year of her future life as a business woman.

Start small in the early 1920s with simple bungalows and develop it over time into a cosmopolitan boomtown!

Attractions such as cinemas and bars need tourists to be profitable. You’ll have to plan ahead to make your resort both profitable and attractive.

Build It! Miami Beach Resort is a fast-paced game – to beat a level in expert time you have to finish all of the tasks before July 2nd, though you have a year to just pass a level. Your goal will consist of a certain number of tourists, attractiveness level and your account balance. The construction tasks vary greatly in each level and often include specific conditions that add a challenge to the gameplay on later levels, when the most of your game map is developed.
